Wow, stunning fish Jelly. I have always loved the look of these snakeheads and I'm glad you finally got one!

Kinda off topic, but neat looking substrate as well. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it. It's goes with the bada$$ fish that's in there, too!

Thanks 8inery. They get worse, Won't win any beauty competitions, very similar look to the Aurant's

Thanks Invader, expect to see the pics on WW's. The substate is blue slate chips I picked up from a DIY store in the UK 'B&Q'. It's considerable cheaper than buying aquarium gravel but a nightmare to clean prior to use.

Brilliant, you finally got it :shout: he is beautiful what size is he at the moment :unsure:

Thanks Nelly. It's been sitting in the shop for about four months while I sorted out the funds and the garage and the tank for it.

Measured it today at about 11".

Yes i've seen that vid before. I have done an awful lot of Googleing of these over the last couple of years.

As you are aware these guys are expensive and I paid a little more than some of them have been going for recently. As I always say "A fish is worth as much as you are willing to pay for it". It's kind of worked out as I lost my 14 year old Obscura last night due to an escape. This is a great replacement pet.

Thanks Simon

These guys along with Auranti's are primaraly invertibrate eaters and a broad powerful jaw suits this diet.

thats a nice looking fish nice pick up

Thanks Cane76.
